Hemel Hempstead legend, LadBaby, wrote his name in the history books by becoming only the third act in UK chart history to get three straight Christmas number one singles.
LadBaby – real name Mark Hoyle – hit the number one spot again with new single Don’t Stop Me Eatin, sung to the tune of Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’, with the help of his wife Roxanne.
The popular YouTuber beat the likes of Mariah Carey, Liam Gallagher and Justin Bieber this year and donated all earnings to The Trussell Trust, a foodbank charity.
The LadBaby’s latest hit follows his previous successful efforts: 2018’s We Built This City… On Sausage Rolls; and I Love Sausage Rolls, from last year. Only The Beatles and the Spice Girrls have dominated the UK Christmas charts to the same extent.
In a BBC Radio 1 interview, LadBaby said: “I can’t believe we’ve done it once, never mind three times.
“We know the British public love a sausage roll, and I think after the year we’ve all had we just wanted to come back and make everyone smile.”
He added: “We wanted to choose a song that people love and can sing to. The best way is to look at karaoke songs, and Don’t Stop Believin’ always features highly on most karaoke lists.
“We felt like after the year everyone’s had, it’s a sentiment everyone needs – don’t stop believing things are going to get better. It felt very fitting, so we had to weave some sausage roll magic into the lyrics.”
